This antique dessert service is an excellent gauge of silver, excellent quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The original gilding is predominately in excellent and impressive condition, showing minimal signs of wear to the waisted crest bearing portion of each handle, all in keeping with age.

The King’s pattern decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each fork and spoon handle show signs of wear, in keeping with age and due to their location.

The hallmarks to the surface of each knife blade are all very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of antique silverware.
